in a big way at those polling stations. those measures, take advantage of those. president obama right now speaking in mentor, ohio. let's listen in. >> -- how proud i am of erin and her sisters and their whole family. give them a big round of applause. [ applause ] there they are right there! erin was pretty excited about meeting me. she saw justin bieber the other day. so i'm like the second most exciting person she's met. the in the last few days. no. my understanding also is that this man right here just w-- ths band just won the state championship. best band in the house in ohio! in the house! congratulations! and the football team is in its first play-off game tonight. so the cardinals have a lot going on right now. despite all that, the fact you still came out i'm grateful for. so thank you. for the past several days, all of us have been focused on one of the worst hurricanes in our lifetimes. and each day i've been getting on calls with mayors and governors, county officials just trying to make sure that people are getting able to help. i tell them the entire country is behind them
from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania, $10 million worth of ads. most of them from the romney campaign and its allies. they're outspending the obama campaign 2 to 1. fred, nobody, no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988 in a presidential
't change. >> cenk: president obama's campaign team, you're welcome. all right now we're going to bring in michael shure our political correspondent. i understand that we in the midst of all this campaigning do not have campaigning in some places. what are they and why? >> there are reasons he is not in certain places. he is going to be in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, colorado, one stop scheduled in new hampshire one in virginia. he does not have any stops in north carolina, nor in michigan. he doesn't have a stop in minnesota or pennsylvania. the threeness, you look at that map there, you see those three states in blue? they're going to stay blue. the president's people follow the president follow the money you know, up until now. we'll get to why money's being spent in other places. you follow the president he's not going to those states, because he knows he has them. not going to north carolina. the people in chicago don't think it's worth going there. even though they're voting. >> cenk: if you've won north carolina, you've won virginia and so many other states, you're already president o
. >> stephanie: right. new surveys in which obama held a solid lead in ohio, eight point lead in wisconsin, but romney aids insisted things are on the right track. >> of course she didn't. of course we are. of course we are on the right wrack. >> stephanie: we feel we are in a very good place and this race is exactly where we wanted to be. and their political director said right now their firewalls are burning. >> firewalls don't burn they prevent burning from getting through. >> i assumed there was a wall of fire. [ mocking laughter ] >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: there has been little movement since his first debate surge. several pollsters are suggesting that mitt romney is claiming the polls are wrong across the board. i imagine mitt romney -- is he still collecting unneeded canned goods at this point? that the red cross -- not specifically we don't need that please don't send that. >> yeah. ♪ there are all kinds of goods, canned goods, vacuum packed on your grocery's shelve ♪ ♪ in the value of the giant douche bag ♪ [ laughter ] >> stephanie: back with sexy l
it another way, that mitt romney is going to either win or equal, right, president obama's record with the women's vote, i think that would be -- i think the facts show that would be a disaster for american women in terms of their standing and if they go that way, it's almost -- i hate to say it it's almost they'll deserve what they get. >> right. i can't -- i certainly don't think that the democrats have not said enough about it. you know? it seems like every campaign email and video reminds women of republican's record on rape -- not record on rapes, but comments on rape and records on abortion and birth control. and you are talking about health care medicare by disproportionately affect women. women tend to outlive men, and these programs are strongly relied on by women. >> bill: there may be other issues where they are close where they stand o are they similar in position or there's not that much of a big difference, when it comes to women's issues there is no doubt about it, that president obama is absolutely on the right side and mitt romney is dead wro
genuinely believe this is a guy who wants to do right by his people. barack obama, you're seeing a human being there. and the camera doesn't lie. obviously, will this weigh an election -- obviously, it leans clearly for obama, but what i love about this is what you see with these guys is the same what you see with the guys in the streets of hoboken that were affected. i believe people are overwhelmingly are tremendously decent including politicians, and you're seeing that. >> is it too cynical to read all this in? let's be clear. analysis is happening within the washington political bubble. but i think if you're watching on television, you're seeing chris christie doing what he has to do for his state and the president doing what a president does, arriving in a disaster zone offering consolation but also his federal help. >> yeah. that's all true. but it does have a political impact. it's not unreasonable to say what are the politics in terms of the impact after this? but one of the most corrosive things about washington in the last 8, 12 years has been the permanent campaign. and we in
went to the polling station and pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> all right. so there is an obvious metaphor. i think the best adjective to describe that would be cheeky. it precipitated like a combination of total fake outrage and genuine outrage i think on the right. i want to talk about this ad not because it's in the news cycle and people are getting mad. to me it says something profound about the political calculation where we are. i want you to think for a second. would john kerry have cut that ad in 2004? no fricken way. they would not have touched that ad in 2004 with a million foot poll. i want to ask you guys why that is right after we take this break. ♪ with a low national plan premium... ♪ ...and copays as low as one dollar... ♪ ...saving on your medicare prescriptions is easy. ♪ so you're free to focus on the things that really matter. call humana at 1-800-808-4003. or go to walmart.com for details. this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1
. the issue. right now it is encouraging to see the ground game obama has been a lead he has. the acts of desperation mitt romney has had to engage in. lou: did we just transition from analysis time a raw-rob party for democrats? >> pretty much. neil this. i'm busted. lou: well, as robert is basking in the glow of something that is not quite, maybe you can give us a sensas to what you think will happen specifically. >> the same states we have been talking about for quite some time. remember that one out of every eight jobs, the halo effect directly to the other industry. obama basking in glory of the bailout, as he should. that is what is turning the election the way it is. lou: to you by these polls? do you buy that it's this tight? that these swing state polls are really the strong? >> well, the polls seem odd because we saw a big shift in the nationwide polls. after the first debate. but then we have seenome movement in swing states like florida and virginia, although not as much as we have seen. ohio seems not to have budget at all. other movement in states like -- surprisingly clo
mitt romney's right and his plan would have sached billions of dollars. >> he's broadly right. this is just bailout of obama was theft. it was taking money from creditors and giving it to the hands of union. the idea that a company goes bankrupt and disappear is a fiction that the obama administration would like you to believe. airlines and companies go bankrupt and restructure the loans and get lean yer taxpayers are off of the hook and everybody is happy and get better cars. a lot of mom and pops called it theft. the real fiction here. yes, it is true a company can go in bankruptcy and emerge. real life was gm-chrysler didn't have enough money to pay suppliers or employees, and by the time the government could have negotiated guaranteed with anybody that might step up to make a loan, those companies were out of the business. it is reality and he's showing why republicans never say i am sorry. it is ridiculous. >> steve, is rick right, that bankings were so bad shape they would have gone in bankruptcy and no one would have lent them money. >> in the fall of the 2008 there was
. it is a poll taken in russia. that's right, all whopping 41 percent of russians want president obama reelected. only 8%, 8% back romney. oh, my goodness. they have cancer that sort of things. those romney supporters may want to kind of watch their backs given what is happening in russia these days. romney will have history on his side heading into next week's election. the republicans have won every single presidential election on november 6th. going back to 1860's when abraham lincoln beat democrat stephen douglas. only five days to get that election in and see if the street continues. i don't see why they don't just call the election based on that historical imperative. new reports tonight that dnc chairman w. wasserman shultz got involved in dated altercation with the florida police officer. he asked her to stop blocking traffic. wasserman shultz was greeting voters outside a polling station in the city of at ventura earlier this week. the policeman asked her to move to the sidewalk, pretty please. she reportedly refused to argue with the officer and the city's mayor he showed up to just a
'll do what's right, that's why i stood up to president obama with the balanced budget amendment and the keystone pipeline and capital and trade. no matter what, i'll protect farmers from overregulation, i'll approve this message because i'll only answer to you. >> paul: that's remarkable stuff, kim. and in indiana joe donnelly, a congressman riching against mourdock, he voted for obamacare and now he's running so far to the right he's going to bump the rear end of michele bachmann's pickup truck. >> you almost feel sorry for rick berg how do you go to the right of heidi? but you see this everywhere, you see all of these candidates, joe donnelly you just mentioned is out there saying i'm going to extend all of the bush tax cuts. heidi hydecamp talking to opposition of obama on keytone pipeline, on cap and trade and one of the problems for the republican as candidates, not only some of whom are a little inexperienced, and tied a little to the tea party and grass roots in some ways been a drag on them in some places, but the fact that it's hard again, to make a big contrast with so

regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you for being more right wing than those guys. how about the issue of drilling and coal? look at this, 241 million more oil barrels under president obama's first three years than under the last three years of george w. bush. 75% increase in drilling rigs from 29 to 2011. u.s. oil production at the highest level since 1997. and most permits for deep water drilling since '07 even though we had the bp disaster happen on his watch. you're not going to outdrill. you're not going to out-coal president obama. how is it that climb climate change working for president obama? would you brag about it? why do they do it, it's the money, lebowsky, of course it's the money. look at how much the oil company spent, $167,000 spent every day lobbying congress. every $1 spent on lobbying is equivalent to $30 worth of tax breaks that they get from the american people. and finally where did the money go? it went largely to romney any way.
-smart and have a tough job, but president obama is right here. one is to my right, one is to my left, and the president is sitting on the stool, and they are both looking at me, saying yes, i did, now i did not, and i felt like this feels so familiar. i instinctively said well, he kind of did, but, and then turned and said the larger point -- i wish i had then -- -- i wish i had been -- that was shorthand. >> a lot of people ask me about if i thought it was appropriate, and aside from you be my friend, i defended you anyway because it is not that you interjected, but that you had it right when you interjected. that is the key. >> it would of been bad otherwise. [laughter] >> than we had a conspiracy theories that i had a transcript with me. i knew that was willing to come up? as you know, as reporters, things stick in your brain. you don't know where they come from. >> they only do if you have done the work. >> i wish i had been a tiny bit more articulate in the second that i was saying to romney you are right, but, and when i said the first thing, people started to applaud, which st
, it is a great advertisement. it is driving right to the heart of what president obama needs to throw colorado, but also the about brown states. it is to get the same coalitions, the youth, the women, both on a phillippe -- unaffiliated and republican, minority provisions need to turn out in historic week disproportionate numbers. denver has a very young population, which is also a democrat stronghold. i have seen that had three or four times in the last couple of nights spirit -- i've seen advertisements three or four times in the last couple of nights. host: are you seeing what lawyers are doing to prepare for that? guest: modern campaigning since 2000 with the florida recount, it seems that one of its first things you do is hire gorda attorneys, between good election law and getting ready for the challenge. on the republican side i'm confident. the democrats have a well oiled machine, not only nationally. but on the republican side they are very well-organized. their two legal strike teams in a lot of the counties, not all 64, but the key ones. they will have teams of lawyers on the ground
necessary steps to protect the rights of our voters. it seems like the obama team is really on the ball on this am i right? >> yes, [ inaudible ] has done a great job of frankly rebuilding a function that had been almost completely decimated by the bush administration, but we have seen since 2000 secretaries of state across the country, hyperpartism, and engaging in behavior that is anti-democratic, and goes against the spirit and the express purpose of their positions. >> stephanie: yeah. ben, absolutely, too many people have died for this right. do not let them take away your right to vote. tell people where they can go to find out the rights in their state. >> folks can go to naacp.org and text v-o-t-e to 6227 and get it that way. and you are so right. and that's one of the things that makes me most proud of our folks in florida. fully over 125,000 votes were in florida, and that's -- you got to recall we started this year with sheriff brooke threatening to throw our people in jail because the office [ inaudible ] was turned in more than 48 hours after they took it o
is right. that is why you see obama doing well in places like ohio. host: we are being joined by tim ryan from the youngstown area. we will go to john on the republican line. caller: good morning. i am calling to ask you if you are familiar with the ballots that are, they are having trouble with them switching over when they are voting for mitt romney, and at the end come a check mark is that over on the democratic side? are you familiar with them? there has been a couple of programs of it. and one of them is right here in columbus, ohio. where they have had a few. i will not say a gaggle of them, but quite a few. and then i heard you earlier on the dollar fight workers, that you and senator brown -- on the delphi workers. you were interviewing the delphi workers. they say they have no pension are not getting any pension. this spin sounds like it is coming from you there a little bit. host: tim ryan? guest: it is a tough situation with the delphi salary folks. we have been working on it along time. my former coach's and family members who were in that group -- i am not here to spend anyth
. coming up, the election is now just nine days away. fine out what president obama and mitt romney are doing as they start the final push. also, police investigate a deadly shooting in contra costa county. and accused of killing two children in new york, where their nanny sought help right before >> new this morning in contra costa county, oakland police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred just before 2:00 this morning. police responding to shots being fired. found a man who had been shot several times near the intersection of main street and hill avenue. he died at a local hospital. more details this morning about that nanny accused of killing two children in new york city. she has no criminal history but did recently seek psychiatric help. the children's mother found the two and six-year-old kids stabbed in the bathtub on thursday. they were fully clothed. they died on the way to the hospital. the nanny had also stabbed herself several times. she is still alive, but investigators can't question her yet because of wounds to her neck. >> two teenagers were injured when
. >>> all right. is this week, president obama was asked about one of the crucial issues of election season that didn't surface during any debates. it took jay leno to directly take on theish shy of voter suppression. >> look at this billboard here. look at the billboard. show it. voters will be asked, but not required. that's a billboard i think in colorado. you know, they make it look like you have to have this. but if you read the fine print, you don't really have to. >> it's a problem. >> it's a little scary. >> the justice department handles these cases, so i can't weigh in on a particular state. here is one thing i know, throughout our history, our country has always been stronger when everybody had a voice. it took a long time to make sure the franchise expanded to everybody. we should be thinking of ways to make it easier for people to vote, not make it harder for folks to vote. [ applause ] >> that's why, you know, that's why the early voting is terrific. >> this network specifically talked about it. affects latino voters. john lewis reminded people that legal efforts to block the
care, of course, you know, two different directions in health care; right? president obama is elected. obamacare becomes the law of the land for sure. it becomes institutionalized. it becomes nothing's impossible, but it becomes close to impossible to reverse four years from now. it'll be operating then. people will have moved over, building, tremendous changes, mandate would have been enforced already. 20,000irs agents will be hired which is absolutely crazy. just what we need, 20,000 more irs agents, and there's almost no way to stop that because even if you have a republican house, which i think is almost forture, nothing in life for sure, but it almost is. if you have a republican senate, unlikely if obama is legislated, but possible, well, he can veto any attempt they would make to overturn obamacare. american people in re-elected president obama are reenforcing obamacare and accepting that as their future. if a president romney is elected, even without a republican senate, with the basically the president votes in the house about the same and the senate within one or two votes b
that will crush business, i see that as a route that obama is taking. right now the free market is struggling. host: in the "financial times" this morning, u.s. lanes to stay on growth course -- u.s. lanes to stay on growth course. like a yacht in the wind, no sooner does the u.s. economy catch a breeze from one direction than a gust comes in from another and it struggle toss move forward. growth was in the third quarter of 2012 as gross domestic product rose at an annualized rate of 2%. housing gave the economy a boost. businesses, investment set it back. the growth data point to an economy with little momentum leaves considerable doubt about its resilience to the so-called fiscal cliff of tax rises and spending cuts due at the end of the year. host: back to the phones. mark in bethesda, maryland, on our line for independents. mark is optimistic. go ahead, mark. caller: hey, how you doing? yeah, i definitely do feel optimistic about the economy. i feel like things are kind of getting back to normal. the housing market is starting to recover. there are definitely signs that are visible with t
hampshire. the small state in the northeast corner holding four leapt laurel votes. right now its unemployment rate for september, 5.7%. president obama won the state by a large margin in 2008 with 9%. neil levesque is the executive director of the new hampshire institute of politics, joining us this morning from manchester. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning from new hampshire. before i start, i want to thank c-span and congratulate c-span radio on 15 great years being on the air. it has been a very valuable resource for some of us in civics. a great resource. in new hampshire, we are a swing states. four electoral votes. it sounds like a small number, with 538, but if al gore had won those of for your votes, he would become president. so they are very important. this state is a tossup. the issues are little different in new hampshire than across the country. unlike a state like nevada and has a higher unemployment rate, and mentors at 5.7%, which is a little higher than it has been all summer, this means jobs and the economy is an issue tha

: 1 americans wake up on november 7th, they need to make the right choice to reelect president obama as the president of this great country. they have the corporations' buying and running their country. they will regret their choices forever. every day that this president has done until now and everything he will do after he has inherited this, bankruptcy of the whole country from his own party. these guys have shipped off the jobs to foreign countries. i lived through that. i have been a refugee all my life. host: sue dvorsky, any response to that caller? guest: there are a few important points that you bring up. i do believe that voters in florida, iowa, and voters across the country understand the depth of what this president and his team faced when they came in. today is the anniversary of the crash of 1929. the dow did not come back to its pre-1929 levels until 1954. that is what a depression looks like. that is what this president, his policies, his team, that is what they prevented. i do believe that americans are looking very carefully at where we were, the direction, and the
deal . no one in their right mind would say i am endorsing president obama because of a climate change stance. that is crazy town. >> steve: we sound frustrate we are. there are reports here in new york city people don't have food they are dumpster dive looters and people using blackberries and iphones as flash lights and people are stealing them from them it is extraordinary situation . >> gretchen: a lot like hurricane katrina. they saw all of the dead bodies afterwards. >> steve: if this was a republican president do you think that the main stream media would handle it differently? the president's photop in new jersey is now in las vegas. >> eric: i love chris christy and he did victory laps with president obama and for fema, but where is fema? i am in favor of letting the states handle all of these things. but if you are going to do victory laps and say fema is the greatest institution in the last four or five years, they better be here. i haven't seen anything. not a thing. it is a disaster over there. >> gretchen: we have much to discuss this morning! in the meantime a fight for
of the right-wing press. he found it on a washington examiner blog post, which reported, quote, jeep, an obama favorite, looks to shift production to china. a move that would crash the economy in toledo. is this true? this is not true. this is a conservative blogger's misreading of a bloomberg report that actually was reporting this news for jeep. the bloomberg report was that global demand for jeep has risen to the point where the company can sell more of them in china and it wants to build jeeps for china in china. this is good news for an american company, not bad news. they are not shipping american jobs overseas. this doesn't mean less work for americans. this means they are adding, they are expanding overseas. thanks to the auto bailout, that mitt romney opposed, chrysler stuck around long enough to win again. yay! or as mitt romney put it -- >> jeep now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> i cover campaigns for a living. right? i understand that politicians inflate and conflate and duck and dodge and weave and even dissemble sometimes. that is not wha
the images we're looking at right there. this was wednesday, president obama and chris christie touring some of the devastated areas. yes, they came together for all the right reasons. chris christie was the keynote speaker at the republican convention. he's a key ally of mitt romney. did that image hurt the romney campaign? >> well, i'm sure that it cautioned a lot of angst backstage, and i'm sure that in the obama campaign the operatives were saying, yes, we've got chris christie at our side with these extraordinary images, but, again, both sides say we now know where the votes are. we know there are very few undecided. need to get them to polls and on time on tuesday. >> as they are working to get people to the polls, mitt romney is saying i'm the agent of change and president obama is saying you know me. you know what i'm standing for. how effective are the arguments? >> at this point i think everybody knows the arguments. i think that the country is ready to have this election over, matt, and they have pretty much made up their minds. we'll see. governor romney today is going to have ev
romney's moving in the right direction. they can't afford four more years of barack obama. >> shannon: something the president has had to talk a lot about and fielded a lot of questions about, of course, the deadly attack in benghazi. four americans left dead and a lot of unanswered questions at this point. the house has held one initial hearing on this. there are a number of investigations underway. what is your impression so far about what have you learned and not been able to learn? >> what's unfortunate, the white house has not been transparent. they promised it, but they have not been candid. yesterday, a local aquilliate in colorado asked the president, did they deny a request for help and the president couldn't answer that basic question. a lot more questions we have four dead americans and people injured. and it's just sad, we have to make sure that it never, never happens again and we can't slow down on the investigation because there is an election in place. i think we are will be slow walked. but there is a lot more to learn and the white house has not been transparent. >>
been saying from the beginning. let's find out as we do every week where that stands right now. joining me is karl rove, former bush senior advisor in austin, texas. joining me from washington, democratic strategist joe trippi. look at the map. you see the info on the key. red, romney. blue, obama. then pinkish is lean romney. light blue is lean obama. the yellow states those are tossup states within the margin of error. reminder this is all based, this map you are looking at polls in the last two weeks. what has changed since last week. the last time we talked? >> first, we have now, record number of state level polls, 69 last week. 28 states. 12 states showed movement to romney and nine states toward obama. but only two states changed the status. one of the smallest numbers we've seen wince bebegan this in april. one not a surprise. tennessee state went from lean romney to solid romney. other is surprise. michigan, battleground state went from lean obama to tos tossup. that is a big shift of 18 electoral college votes. >> bret: of those, michigan a big -- >> michigan is a big, that is
are up. they are over the 2008 numbers. we are moving in the right direction. that is attributed to obama and the shared ground game we have in place. >> the independent line. caller: i have been following you. i appreciate your plane speak. i hope you stay true to the politics and not get into the corruption of the political atmosphere. the mess we were in from 2000 on, americans tend to say i do not like the way that was. i want to fix it. we want to talk about 200 years ago, but we will not talk about 10 years ago. mr. whose dead doing what he was doing. people need to realize the matter what side you are aon, that goes to the core. i do not trust people who say we will take care of everything. we have to make things happen rather than let things happen. what do you think? guest: good point. it is outrageous to think the secretary of state, the top election official in a state like ohio that happens to be a swing state, would try to -- >> we will break away in a moment or two to take you live to petersburg, virginia after to miss state university and the first lady, michelle obama. >>
attention when the time is right. that's why you see obama doing well in places like ohio. >> again, host: again, we're being joined by tim ryan, a democrat from youngstown, ohio, via skype. we go to a caller from ohio. good morning, john. caller: good morning. good morning, mr. ryan. i am calling to ask you if you're familiar with the ballots that are -- they're having trouble with in switching over when they're voting for mitt romney and at the end the check mark is then over on the democratic side? are you familiar with them? there's been a couple of programs of it. one of them is right here in columbus, ohio. where they've had a few, i'm not going to say a gaggle of them but there's been quite a few. but then i heard you earlier on the delphi workers, that you and senator brown was trying to work something out for them. i just watched a program on that where they were interviewing the delphi workers themselves. they said they have no pension. they're not getting any pension. so it's kind of -- this kind of spin sounds like it's coming from you there a little bit. >> congressman ryan?
bailout. i do not think anyone can vote against obama because he had not save that the auto industry would have been lost. i cannot see how any woman in her right mind would vote for a man who would not support the lily ledbetter act, equal pay for equal work. that is another no-brainer for me. i just hope every democrat in colorado would get out and vote. we have three votes in this house hold for obama. in a few days i will be mailing my ballot in. that's my comment. guest: we literally the same town. it's lewisville, colorado. it's the greatest small town in america. a great place to raise your family. there is a pitch my friends in city council will be happy for. a lot of others have already made up their minds. both sides can look at the recovery act and make strong cases for wire why not it did not work. we do not have enough time today to dispute that, but the point that we make in the editorials are that it provided significant spending to the state of colorado. it funded teacher jobs and other government programs to lessen the impact of the great recession here in the state and st
four obama's in the car. >> early start continues right now. >>> will it be the final factor? four days before america votes we're about to get the last pre-election numbers on jobs and our economy. >> please, i can't. i can't do it anymore. >> i know. >> i got nothing left. memories or anything else. >> survivors of hurricane sandy still waiting for help and worrying about the future. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start" i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. it is 6:00 a.m. in the east and we begin with the last real economic barometer before tuesday's election. the labor department releases the october jobs report about 2 1/2 hours from now. jobs and the economy, of course, are primary issues out on the campaign trail. with president obama and mitt romney running so close, this morning's jobs report takes on even more significance. christine romans is previewing the report for us. and paul steinhauser is looking at the political impact. let's start this morning with christine. >> good morning, you guys. the last big economic hurdle before the election on tuesday, a
